DPT Interactivity Poll

Here are the results of the Interactivity Poll that's been running since the 24th Mar.

As you can see slightly over half of respondents have reported a large drop off in interaction. My view is that many signed up to G+ and gave it a go for a while but the novelty quickly wore off and what we're left with the people who actually find value in the platform. None of this is scientific by any means as the parameters were quite vague.
It's more a sense of peoples feelings and perceptions than real hard data.

Many thanx to all who took part ;)

I think what has actually happened is that the honeymoon is over. G+ has come of age. What do I mean by that? Those of us who were here from the beginning back in the beta test days will remember when everything was new and shiny and +1s, followers, reshares, etc where easy to come by. You could gain hundreds or even thousands of followers in a day just because one of the power users posted a circle that you were in or reshared a post of yours. For a while, the interaction level was crazy. You could be away for a day or two and come back to 99+ notifications! 
Then, time passed and many fell away from the platform for whatever reasons. But, the 1st Users follower count stayed high.
Now, G+ is no longer a novelty and newcomers find it very hard to gain any traction.
It's no longer about large numbers of strangers viewing your posts, it has fragmented into smaller groups or communities of like minded people sharing and interacting with one another.
Another aspect is the amount of content on the platform has rocketed so you have fewer active users viewing more content.
There's been a stat going around the web regarding Twitter users that mirrors what appears to be going on in other platforms too.
It's called the 90 - 9 - 1 rule.

90% of all users are lurkers. They read, search, navigate, and observe, but don't contribute
9% of all users contribute occasionally
1% of all users participate a lot and account for most of the content in the community

It's been my experience that only a tiny percentage of people who view your posts will actually give any feedback at all. This is true for web forums, news posts, blogs, etc.

So, the future will be smaller, more focused groups and only the top 1% will get serious numbers for every post no matter how relevant.

DPT Poll

There have a few posts recently by avid G+ users about whether interaction on the platform has waned in the last 12 months. It's very hard to get definitive data on this as Google keep that very much to themselves.

So, we're going to run a mini-poll and let it run for a while.

Please +1 the comment that you agree with

Make some money from your Theme Posts

As the development of the +Google+ platform continues ever onwards and upwards with Google being famous for trying new things all the time. It's just been announced that from today all Photo Theme postings will have an +Google AdSense adverts overlaying each photo. 

The owner of the photo will then receive a small percentage of the revenue generated. They say they will try to key relevant ads to the image content.

Eg; Landscapes - Hiking, outdoor, Mountaineering equipment, Breath mints, etc.
Portraits - Cosmetics, Clothing, Deodorants, Nasal hair remover, etc.
Cityscapes/Architecture - Architects, Builders, Map makers, Brothels, etc.

... and so on.

Image Search

Chrome users, you can get this handy dandy Image Search extension here ~ http://goo.gl/0OfmG

Install it and then right click on any image and Google will run a search for it or similar pictures. It's a handy way of finding out who actually owns the image as well as seeing if anyone else is hosting your own images.
